Two Boeing airplanes have fallen out of the air and crashed in the past six months. On the surface, this is a technical failure. But the real story is about a company's desire to beat their rival.

  • Hey ,favor could you guys explain the NO BAIL SWEDEN SITUATION ? would help us ASAP.

  • This was completely avoidable. Boeing had other ideas, though.

  • Boeing was lucky those crashes were in developing countries... so they get a way with it with a couple of Mill$

  • Boeing 737-Max: *Crashes twice in a month* DC-10: *My True Sucessor..*

  • It almost crashed a third time, But the pilot's military training saved everyone's lives.

  • This is scandalous! This is criminal negligence! Boeing should be sued by each and every one of the families of the victims, and I hope those families take them to the cleaners!

  • This is worst than the early DC-10 safety record.

  • Cheapskate

  • It all comes down to.. save money from research and development of a new plane by using the old ones.. just put a new engine and use a software to balance it out.. greed!

  • The new was a failure

  • Keep in mind flying a 737 max is still 100 times safer then driving a car

  • Out of 19k comments i reached the bottom comment

  • By the way... Where are Lepore and Paladino?

  • Thank you for that, very well explained, far better than the slender news companies dished out, whoever made the decision to not tell and not train the pilots killed those people, and even worse when the first plane went down they didnt hold their hands up and ground the whole fleet. Wait and see if ANYONE is jailed from this. It is like the Challenger crash, one man insisted that it should take off while the company reps who designed the 'O' rings {the cause of the crash} begged them not to, it was costing NASa money to stop coundowns so he made new rules, The manufacturors people told them it would blow up on the pad. He didnt go to jail, they promoted him

  • indonesia and ethiopia - not america........mmmmmm!?

  • Hnz

  • May Boeing go bankrupt and cease to exist for this, and those responsible go to prison for life.

  • Hey Vox can you make an updated video on the 737 max?

  • What if boeing just upgrade the wheels and then make the engine big

  • A big big problem is that most certain this plane will not be grounded permanently, instead Boing with their strong lobbying organisation will force us regular people into the planes once again, still trusting a software with a artificial helping system to balance a totally wrong and dangerous design and construction.

  • The engines were also further forward

  • Lockheed should start building commercial airliners again!

  • I flew on a Max twice across country and it performed flawlessly.

  • gravity

  • Boeing: let’s endanger people to save money. STONKS

  • Boeing is well known for cutting corners. They forgot to think about peoples life.

  • Thanks for the video, That helped clear up the problem in a few minutes.

  • Hi All, Or build new wings, with the pylons on the top of the wing, and behind the leading edge. That would make it nice for military use on grass runways, or as a seaplane. Thanks.

  • Hi All, Question is, what do we do now? I would rip off those big engines, replace with standard engines, start with clean sheet of paper and design new plane for big engines. Thanks for your time, take care.

  • There isn’t anything wrong with the plane but there is a problem with the training

  • Engineers probably knew all about this problem......

  • MCAS means: May Crash Any Second lol 😂

  • Boeing & FAA are the criminals...MCAS=MAY CRASH ANY SECOND

  • I got a few ideas for fixes 1.update the software with the new feature called "takeoff mode". enabled by the pilot before takeoff and automatically turn off after a certain altitude. 2.require the new pilots to use a simulator for training regardless of whatever the pilot ever flew the 737ng or not

  • Airbus has similar system on many of their planes. Some times it failed but luckily their planes were in high altitude so nothing happened. But no one talks about it...

  • Видео оплаченно Айрбас?

  • They update aircraft's software like it's running a Windows update lol

  • Maybe the pilots oversized buck tooth fell out and got lodged in the rudder controls. We'll never know the whole story.

  • The people who approved this, the people who worked on this and didn`t tell, should be in jail for life now

  • Money is the root of all evil

  • Why so many airline accidents out if Jakarta?????

  • Now it’s gone cost them more only if they didn’t cut corners

  • airbus > boeing

  • Money is more important then lives for these bunch of people who fear hunger .


  • Boeing must be punished. Severely punished. It should sting them so much (financially, morally, etc...) that they won't forget it ever in future. Terminate the concerned from it's chief to the entire team responsible. This is cold-blooded murder. Had American citizens died in American 737Max planes, their punishment would have been more severe. Shame. Victims families must get a few billion $.

  • So when the plane under hard thrust it's being bent like a banana?....but it's OK because when it's cruising the plane straightens out again. And the air-frame was designed in the 1960s Go and get a piece wire and bend it in your hands....and then straighten it out again....repeat ...and after some time the single piece of wire turns into two pieces of wire!

  • rest in peace to all the people who died in the plane crash. :(

  • Some people at boeing need to go to jail for the rest of their lives. No amount of money will undo the harm they have done. They need to suffer and have plenty of time to consider what they did to all those trusting souls.

  • This shouldn’t pass that easily
